Marcel Khalifé

Marcel Khalifé (composer) was born on June 10, 1950 in Amchit, Lebanon. He studied the oud (the Arabic lute) at the Beirut National Conservatory of Music and graduated in 1971, and, ever since, has been injecting a new life into the oud. At a very young age Marcel Khalifé exhibited a strong passion and love for sound and music. He expressed it by banging on household items from pots and pans and playing the strings of handmade chairs. Sensing his talent and gift of music his mother talked his father into buying him a musical instrument.
